Session Description:

This roundtable addresses the elision of theory in the new modernist studies. Recent scholarship on new manuscripts, new global and temporal dimensions of modernism, and new material and cultural forms raises theoretical questions of the kind that gave rise to the new modernist studies in the 1990s. This roundtable seeks to synthesize, through theoretically informed inquiries, the diverse understandings that the recent expansion of modernism has generated.
